Time to Play Catch up With the Smiths!

Alright so a lot of things have happened since the beginning of December, We moved out of our little one bedroom apt., Mike and I both Graduated from BYU-I, we spent a full week with the Smith Family for our first Christmas as a married couple , we spent New Years with the Lindsey Family, and Mike got a REAL JOB. (yay!)He's been working so hard and I am so proud of him. We now live in Southern California, yes you guessed it, with the Parents but its been really fun to spend this time with Family. So here are some pictures of the festivities. (Be prepared for Picture Overload)Goodbye Rexburg!!
When we finally made it to Northern California after the long drive home, Mike had a boys day out with all his buddies and they went rock climbing. Here's my man showing off his stuff.
On Pat's Birthday we got pizza and hot fudge sundaes and Mike and I got to watch Kami cakes and Dylan! I'm glad we got to see the little ones. Kami had so much fun playing with the girls.On Christmas Eve we got to open up 2 presents, 1 being pajamas and the other our gift from Mama and Papa Smith we got a new video camera and a cute framed quote.
This is Erika running around in circles because she's so excited for Christmas and wouldn't stop to get her shirt on.
I even made a batch of peanut butter cookies with the hershey's kisses that, not only turned out great but, actually got eaten. I snapped a picture right before the last one was devoured.On Christmas morning I felt like a little kid again. I was all giddy for mike to see what I had gotten him and he felt the same about me. I can't believe all the amazing gifts I got from my new family and my husband. I am so blessed to have this amazing family that has accepted me and made me feel like such a part of the family. I couldn't have asked for a better first Christmas with my In-laws. It was so much fun and I can't wait until we are all together again.
(p.s. if you haven't ever played the game balderdash I suggest you buy it! I bought it for Mike for Christmas and the whole family spent the next 3 days playing it cuz it was so much fun and HILARIOUS!)

On New Years Eve we had an outrageous Bunco Tournament with cash prizes, Bingo Tournament with more prizes and lots of Yummy Food! Thanks to My big Seester for planning such a fun New Years!
